Tata Petrodyne

Tata Petrodyne (TPL), incorporated in 1993, is engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. Originally promoted by Tata Industries with the objective of spearheading the Tatas’ foray into the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry, TPL is today a 100-per cent subsidiary of Tata Sons.
